***BTW, don’t eat whole cardamom pods and don’t serve the ice cream with pods as a garnish like photographed above. It would be nasty to bite into a cardamom pod. I did it because I wanted to be an angsty artist who didn’t do logical things and only followed the beauty and my gut, you know what I mean? It’s ok, neither do I.***
If you’re not familiar with cardamom this dessert is a great introduction to the spice and if you already know and love cardamom then I don’t really need to say anything. Just scroll down to the recipe card and make it happen.
To make an ice cream base, that you can flavor any way you like, all you need are a few pantry staples:
Milk, cream, eggs and sugar.
As long as you have these things, you have ice cream!
Add some cardamom and you have some serious gourmet shit. (If you get that reference, comment below and I will have found my spirit animal in you.)
You need about 8-10 whole green cardamom pods, crushed so that the inner seeds are released because that’s where most of the flavor is.
